Aluminium rainscreens allow large format panel finishes in either a polyester powder coated (PPC) colour finish or pre-coated metal.
Aluminium rainscreens can be installed in various forms including flat panel, cassettes or interlocking planks.
Panels are either face-fixed or secret-fixed onto an adjustable aluminium sub-structure.
The use of a 2 or 3mm thick pre-finished metal sheet, folded into a tray or panel, provides a very high quality finish with the peace of mind associated with an A1 ‘non-combustible’ product. A2O work with supplier Valcan using their Vitradual product.
Solid aluminium, folded into panels, trays or planks, allows wide flexibility on finish colours and sizes. The PPC finish offers shorter lead times than panels fabricated from a pre-finished material. 3mm PPC carries the A2 ‘limited combustibility’ fire rating, provided by most powder-coating suppliers.
Aluminium composite material (ACM) is a flat, 3-layer sandwich panel of 2 thin pre-painted aluminium sheets bonded to a non-aluminium core. ACM provides good dimensional stability, low weight and a sleek, brilliant look with a high degree of ‘flatness’ in large format panels. Panels are pre-finished in a range of colours in painted or metallic finishes. ACM carries A2 ‘limited combustibility’ fire rating. A2O works with Alucabond & Larson.
